News for Fans, By Fans!

Meet the ‘Pets’ of FAN FEST NEWS!

Last week Secret Life of Pets made its grand debut into theaters, after months of anticipation. What are our pets doing at home while we go to work during the day? Are they watching funny human videos on Youtube? (I guarantee you, my dog has an entire channel somewhere of my most klutzy moments). Are they out catching Pokemon of their own?

Truth is, we don’t really know what our pets are doing at home when we are not there… or at least what they are thinking when we are not home. Statistics show that one in five homes across the world is accompanied by an animal companion. Here at Fan Fest News, we actually have some animal companions of our very own, and we are more than happy to introduce them to you

Jules, Sawyer, Charlotte and Charlie

Zever (tan) was just adopted on the 2nd of July, she is the most lovable girl and would be content to cuddle as long as you will allow it. She is around two and half to four years old.
